Starting today, digital media company Genius (formerly Rap Genius) is teaming up with Apple Music to provide annotations and song lyrics to "thousands of songs" on the platform.

As streaming becomes the most common way people listen to tunes, Apple Music and Spotify have emerged as the leaders in the race to dominate subscription music. Moreover, the media company announced that its entire lyrics database will be available on Apple Music. On the flip side, Genius now has Apple Music as their official music player on the site. Genius will provide lyrics to "thousands" of songs on Apple Music itself, and Apple Music subscribers who visit Genius can play any song in full on that song's page.

Apple Music began showing song lyrics on the service following the launch of iOS 10 in June 2016.

Genius was founded in 2009.

Genius has also integrated its extensive database of lyrics with Apple Music, eliminating the need to leave the app to search for exactly what your favorite artist is saying. That means you can look up the lyrics, play the song, and then sing along accurately.

"We're proud to make Apple Music our official music player".
